Waiting Upon the Lord

Quoting from Pastor Larry Peters' sermon published in the Christmas 2011 Gottesdienst:
    We wait upon the Lord wherever He has placed us - we don't head out to the mountaintop to camp out for the Lord.  Peter was so full of himself he missed the absurdity of three tents on the Mount of Transfiguration.  We don't go somewhere else to wait for the Lord to finish His new creation.  We wait upon the Lord right where we are - in the bonds of marriage, within our human families, as workers for our employers, and as good citizens of our communities.  We wait where we are, doing what we do as vocation from the Lord, for the Lord to come and finish this new creation.
